We've not seen how well Arlovski would do in a mainly ground-based fight. If the sports scientists are right, he would gas.
BTW, it's not that if you eat no carbs you waste away. It's that protein takes longer to convert into muscle glycogen, which is the fuel for movement. So without carbs your muscles tire more quickly.
That seems to be the general consensus. Not everyone agrees, but in medical science, there is someone who disagrees with almost everything.
But here is a thought: bodybuilders eat a lot of protein and no carbs, marathon runners do eat plenty of protein, but also plenty of carbs. Surely MMA fighters should be at least a little like marathon runners.
